sh sh.. consonant digraph ‘sh’ is here! Pack I

What are consonant digraphs?

Consonants are all letters in the alphabet apart from the vowels a, e, i, o, and u.

b c d f g h j k l m n p q r s t v w x y z are consonants

A digraph is two letters that make just one sound.

A consonant digraph is two adjacent consonants that produce one sound.

s and h are two consonants which come together to form a new sound, the /sh/ sound.

I usually tell children that when ‘s’ and ‘h’ come together, they form a new sound, /sh/.

Today, I will be sharing the first pack for digraph sh sound words.

The first is a read and colour worksheet. You will read words which begin with /sh/. The /sh/ words are in a large font and can be coloured. I would suggest colouring only /sh/ sound in each word so that the child understands that these two words are read together.

Next  is a fun sticking activity worksheet for words beginning with /sh./ There are pictures and letter tiles. The child has to spell the word using the letter tiles and stick it under the pictures. The words are shop, ship, shut and shed. Alternatively, the child can also write the word.

The last ‘word puzzle’ worksheet is a kids favourite. There are six pictures which need to be cut along with the letters. Cut along the dotted line too. Now give your child three tiles for the first word and let him form the picture and read the word under it.

I make the kids stick word puzzles in their notebooks. We stick one puzzle and write a simple sentence containing that word. For e.g. Shut the door. I have a big shell. Mom has a shop. Dad is in the shed. That is my shin etc.
